Lil Wayne had yet another traumatic health scare last night. Details are still extremely fuzzy at this point, but apparently, the thirty-year-old rapper was rushed him to Cedars Sinai Hospital by his bodyguards. He was treated by doctors immediately after arriving and recovered sufficiently enough to go home this morning.
According to TMZ, Weezy’s specific medical problem was yet another seizure. He’s been hospitalized numerous times and forced to alter his life in numerous ways to deal with his health concerns. If you take it from him, he’s been an epileptic since childhood, and despite medication, this is just something he needs to deal with. If you take it from his biggest critics, however, much of the blame for his recent issues should fall at the feet of purple drank.
Lil Wayne hasn’t spoken publically about this latest trip to the hospital, but one would imagine he’s starting to get fed up with being in what feels like a constant state of medical flux. Maybe he needs to change medications. Maybe he needs to alter his lifestyle. Maybe he needs to seek another medical opinion. He’s got too many great songs to write and too many skateboarding tricks to master to waste away too much more time confined to a hospital bed.
Pop Blend’s sincerest thoughts go out to Lil Wayne, his entire family and all of his friends during this time of need. Here’s to hoping he finds something that allows him to live at least some measure of a normal life. Even if his body can take all this strain, I’m not sure those who love him can take the mental toil of seeing him spend so much time in the hospital.
